As an infant, John was rocketed to earth from a doomed planet. Landing in Queens, NY, he was raised by a lovely Irish couple in a stately apartment that had two poles that went to the basement. His parents tried to raise him as a normal boy, but his geek DNA won out. He thrived on a steady diet of Saturday morning cartoons, Sunday Funnies, comic books, TV, movies, books and drawing. Today, John is a graphic designer, a cartoonist, a teller of tales, and a Sci-Fi & Comic Geek. He rides the Interwebs as Surfside Jack, lover of genre fiction, movies, books, music and art. Oh, and beer. Good beer. He keeps threatening to launch his own Website and flood the planet with stuff from his brain. Heaven help us all if he ever gets off his ass and does it.2 Articles

Shae Rossi is a freelance writer and editor during the day, and a belly dancing circus gal by night. Shae grew up reading comics, and devouring every fantasy and sci-fi novel, TV show, or movie she could find. When she’s not performing, she’s usually curled up with her Kindle, out with friends exploring the Boston area’s plethora of amazing cuisines and spirits, belly dancing at an SCA event, or catching up on all the video games she missed out on during her 6-year long devotion to World of Warcraft.1 Articles

Keith is the epitome of a kid at heart with a healthy geek twist. Striking the delicate balance between being an adult and being a kid, he inevitably can’t stop his love of Lego and other geek addictions from showing through – much to the enjoyment of his friends, co-workers, wife, and family. Transformers, Batman, and Star Wars top his list while a pervasive admiration and enjoyment of DC, Marvel, and Lego in just about any format occupy what remaining brainpower he has at the end of the day. And as if you had to ask, yes he did shed a tear in 1986 when Optimus Prime died on the big screen. When not trying to cram in additional pop culture goodness into his life, Keith enjoys the occasional bike ride, ball games at Fenway Park, and knowing who really shot first.1 Articles
Tom Racine is a graphic artist, cartoonist, illustrator and corporate video producer who happens to sound pretty good on a microphone, hence his comics-related podcast, Tall Tale Radio. (www.talltaleradio.com) He is proud to be one of the original comic/sci-fi/fantasy geeks who came of age in the 1980s, and he’s a huge film buff of all types. He’s a night person in love with the dawn, and is therefore tired a lot. (Having two daughters under the age of 7 doesn’t help, but it sure is fun.) He’s always up for a chat about film or the comics, so feel free to follow him on twitter at “talltaleradio.”1 Articles
Adam Gagnon is an alien. Infiltrating these United States by way of Canada,
he thought the only way to blend in was through total pop culture
immersion. After finding a love for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the
Future, and Spider Man, he realized you didn’t have to try to blend into the New
York suburbs from three hours over the border.
A mild mannered internet marketer by day; Adam watches an absurd amount of
DVDs and plays any video games he can get his hands on by night. After all,
“with no power comes no responsibility.” He realized with all of his time
spent in fictional worlds and talking about them, writing about them was
the next logical step.
More of Adam’s reviews can be found at www.sitdown-shutup.net. He also has
an affinity for graphic t-shirts and draws and creates them at
